A CUSTOMER WORTH HAVDIO
Canada is a customer worth having,
and would be even a better customer if
congress * ould but rise to the occasion.
The statistics issued by the department
of commerce and labor show that for
the six months ending December 31,
1901, Canada bought from Americad
merchants and manufacturers goods ot
the value of $ori,000,000i For the sec
ond six months of the succeeding year
Canada increased her purchases some
what more than $2,000,000, while dur
ing the six months ending December
31, 1903, her purchases footed up $?i9.
7;2,S?2, or at the rate of $139,545,7(4
As to imports from Canada, ther re
main as nearly stationary as it is possi
ble for them to remain. During the
second six months of 1901 the imports
from Canada were $38,tij< 1,000 in value;
during the corresponding period of 1902
they were $38,118,000, and during the
second six months of 1904 they were
133,638,000. There are countries on
the other side of the water making a
greater fuss over friendship, traditional
and otherwise ? but when it comes to
appreciation of the best markets and
the fairest treatment they are not in it
with Canada.? Olympia It corder.
That is all very true, and if the un
natural tariff wall were torn away from
the imaginary line which separates the
two countries, both the exports and im
ports would be multiplied many times
over. The volume of trade between
the two countries, which is now less
than $220,000,000, annually, would ex
ceed $500,000,000 a year in five years.
Canada would take on a life akin to
that existing in the western portion of
the United States, and the gain to our
country would be that which always
accompanies the opening and develop
ment of a new country on the frontier.
Commercial reciprocity between the
United States and Canada would be the
greatest boon that could be given com
merce in North America.
With people ami capital coming
north in a larger stream than ever be
fore to be employed in the development
of Alaska, this district enters the pres
ent spring with better and brighter
prospects than it has entered any pre
ceding spring. They may talk of im

other countries, we know nothing but

There seems to be but little doubt
that there was a battle in Northern
Korea. The news has come from Fort
Arthur, Seoul, St Petersburg and
Tokio, and most of the stories are about
rule in the Yukon with American gov
ernment in Alaska to >he credit of the
former country. Has the Juneau paper

License Money to Be Speit
Amdbg the features of the Alaska
road bill is the provision that all of 1 he
money derived from liquor licenses and
occupation and trade licenses issued
outside the limits of the incorporated
towns in Alaska shall remain as a sep
arate and distinct fund, to be known as
the Alaska fund, to be wholly devoted
to certain purposes in Alaska. Of the
money so derived 25 per cent, is to be
devoted to the maintenance of public
schools, and provision is made for the
establishment of such schools wherever
there are 12 resident white children
over the age of 6 and under 18. The
?education of Indian children is left as
before to the interior department
Further provision is made out of the
fund for the support of the insane and
indigent. The remainder of the fund
is to go to the construction of bridges,
roads and trails to be under direction of
engineering officers of the army.
